Go for the AMD 64 setup. It has a better graphics card and processor. The XP Home I could care less for

Go with the AMD set up. The processor is much faster, for reasons why just surf around this forum and you'll definetly see why AMD 64 processors beat out any pentium 4 or pentium D processor.

That's really expensive, you might want to do some shopping around before you buy. Go to sites like:

www.tigerdirect.ca
www.ncix.com
www.cancomputer.com
www.canadacomputers.com
www.oemexpress.com
